Friday, May 7, 2021 (all day) to Saturday, May 8, 2021 (all day)

We are pleased to announce an exciting multi-day Health Data Science virtual workshop, co-sponsored by the Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute (CANSSI) and the National Institute of Statistical Sciences (NISS, based in the U.S.).  The workshop activities will be held on Friday, May 7 and Saturday, May 8 (2021), with pre-workshop short courses held on May 6.  We have many great presenters lined up, which you can see, along with the agenda, on the workshop website.   Registration is now open, and you can find the registration information near the top-right corner of the website.

The full program, including speaker titles and abstracts, can be found on the NISS website

Also, two notes for students: 

  • First, there is a poster competition, which could be a nice way to promote your interesting research, not to mention potentially win one of the awards!  This competition is actually open to anyone who is currently a student or recent graduate with a degree awarded after January 1, 2019.  
  • Second, the short courses are free for any students from CANSSI Institutional Members, including the University of Waterloo.  There will also be a networking happy hour for all participants after the talks end for the day on Friday, May 7.


Any questions about the workshop can be emailed to co-organizers Joel Dubin or Yeying Zhu.
